You might be asking yourself, "I wonder what kind of goodies
we will be having today at Starrydeborahs tea party."
Well, let me show you!
We are having mini spinach and cheese quiche tarts along with lemon sugar cookies, petite palmiers, which are a french type of cookie that just melts in your mouth! and of course, no tea party would be complete without chocolate, peppermint brownies today!
I've also brewed a pot of french vanilla caramel tea and as you can see from my tea cup, I love lots of cream and sugar in mine! lol
Ohhhh, I see another quote has appeared!
"Where there's tea there's hope."
Sir Arthur Pinero
Isn't that a sweet saying? I think it's sooo true, because when you sit down with a cup of tea, it causes you to put perspective to your situation and at least for me, it brings me back to the realization that I have sooo many blessings and life is good. My hope for you today, is that you will also find this celebration of tea to do the same for you.
Look at this beautiful tea pot! My sister in law gave it to me a few years ago as a birthday gift.
It's an antique and I love it so much. Today I will use it to put the names of all of you for the tea cup giveaway, hmmmm, still looks empty.
Here's a few did you know's regarding tea!
Did you know:
1.There is no taxation on tea.
because of an historical event that you all remember learning in school about, the Boston Tea Party!
2.Tea is the second most popular drink in the world, after water.
3. It takes about 2,000 to 3,000 leaves to make one pound of processed tea.
4.The British drink approximately three cups of tea per day.
Okay, I'll be back in a bit for more tea fun.
